Main Conference

The HRI 2015 conference will offer the opportunity for demonstration of innovative ideas in human-robot interaction. We invite demonstration proposals for cutting-edge prototype systems that make interaction with robots more intuitive, seamless, and pleasant, or otherwise
illustrate some human-robot interaction concept in an exciting and engaging way. A jury will assign a Demonstration Award for the most innovative presentations. This will be judged not only on the technical quality of the work, but also the quality of the demonstration and presentation itself. Abstracts for video submissions will follow the same guidelines as the full papers, using the same MS Word and LaTeX2e templates, but will be limited to one page. Accepted video abstracts will be published in the “extended abstracts” of the conference (a companion publication to the “main proceedings” of the conference), archived in the ACM Digital Library, and be presented at a video session during HRI 2015. Please submit the required documents through the submission and review website by December 8, 2014. Questions regarding demonstration submissions can be directed to Demonstration Co-Chairs Dylan Glas and Jim Young.

Requirements and Guidelines

Demonstration abstract will be used to judge the suitability of your demonstration to the conference and program, so it is important to polish this. It must include:

  • Demonstration title, and paper ID the demo is related to, if applicable
  • Authors (names, affiliation, email, address, etc)
  • Abstract (max 100 words) and keywords
  • Description of the demo including the research angle as appropriate.
  • One “representative image” suitable for use on the conference web site and in other promotional materials. This should be 200x200px.
  • Size and space requirements for the demonstration.
  • A list of equipment that you will bring.
  • Details on the number and roles of people supporting the demo.
  • Make clear and special note of special requirements requested, such as electrical, networking, lighting, and sound requirements.
  • Optional Video: Authors are allowed to submit a video clip to support your demonstration. The video files can be in .AVI, .MOV or .MP4 file formats. They should play on standard PC and Macintosh computers without requiring third party codecs to be installed. The file size should be less than 100 MB and should not exceed 3 minutes in length.
